LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is schedule to begin demolition of the existing northbound I-27 bridge on Wednesday. The work will require closing U.S. Highway 82/4th Street, at I-27.

Westbound U.S. 82 traffic will be detoured north on the I-27 frontage road to Municipal Drive, over the southbound interstate frontage road and then back south to U.S. 82.

Eastbound U.S. 82 traffic will be detoured south on I-27 to the 19th Street exit. Motorists will then use the turn-around at 19th Street onto the northbound frontage road to get back to U.S. 82.
